Subject: I can hear you now.
Surprisingly easy to follow film about how sound travels, the importance of pitch and loudness etc etc. A real surprise, especially coming from an outfit such as EB films.

Subject: An unsound film
If you want to learn about sound, this film will not help. Poorly organized with lots of glossed-over jargon, poor explanations, and confusing illustrations. Tries get from the basic "what is sound?" to complex modal vibrations in a short educational film. A mess.
